Border Crisis Resolution

by the Constitution Party National Committee –  4 May 2019 – Milwaukee, Wisconsin


Whereas, Thomas Jefferson expressed his concerns with an “open” immigration policy, suggesting that the proper form of government which the United States enjoyed would be polluted by having “foreign/alien” influence injected into the election/legislative process through an immigration policy which had foreign concepts of government made popular and fostered within the United States as large numbers of people entered the United States which were not steeped in the principles upon which this nation was founded, and that it could possibly ultimately destroy the constitutional republic which allowed liberty to prevail in the United States, and


Whereas, by any reasonable definition, the current illegal alien invasion must be considered an invasion, and


Whereas, Article I, Section 10, clause 3 of the United States Constitution states:


“No State shall, without the Consent of Congress . . . engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay”, and


Whereas, an invasion can take many forms; including thousands, and even millions, entering the country uninvited and illegally, various forms of violence, criminal activity, disease, economic disruption, illicit destructive substances and behavior, etc., and

Whereas, as destructive and deleterious effects grow in areas impacted by growing numbers of invaders, it is possible, and even likely, that states, communities, and even individuals will reach the point that frustration and risks may be so high that they exercise a response resulting in unfortunate and tragic consequences, including violence, if the national government further delays or refuses to fulfill its Constitutional responsibility to protect against invasion, and

Whereas, this circumstance would destroy the nation’s domestic tranquillity and be destructive of the nation’s general welfare, thus subverting the very reasons the United State Constitution was brought forth as evinced in the Preamble to the Constitution, and

Whereas, the integrity and protection of the international borders of the nation must be maintained, and

Whereas, No “right of migration” exists for foreign nationals to enter the nation under terms other than those defined by Congress, and

Whereas, Congress has a duty to establish terms which protect the sovereignty of the nation and its established form of limited Constitutional Government, and


Therefore, be it resolved:  If the United States is to remain a free and independent nation under the United States Constitution, it must immediately secure its international borders.

Be it further resolved, that the Constitution Party National Committee strongly supports and encourages the individual state organizations of the Constitution Party to mobilize and engage within their individual states to foster and encourage this position with all elected national, state, and local officials.
